irst annual International Environmental ‘Omics Synthesis conference will be held in Cardiff, UK, on September 9-11th, 2013, followed by a Technology Training Workshop on 12-13th September.
The aim of this conference is to bring together researchers and organisations from a range of disciplines with shared interests in the development of new approaches for data handling, generation and analysis in environmental omics. Science areas of interest include bioinformatics, DNA-barcoding, genomics, metagenomics, metabarcoding, transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics, epigenetics, evolutionary and ecological omics, phylogenetics, study of ancient DNA and anthropology, new tools, resources and training, and beyond as applied to the study of the natural environmental and environmentally relevant organisms and systems. It is our hope is that the resulting interaction and exchange of ideas will lead to novel approaches, new collaborations and the establishment of a wider integrated ‘Omic community.
EOS and this conference is supported by Natural Environmental Research Council (NERC) through its Mathematics and Informatics for Environmental ‘Omics Data Synthesis program and the UK Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) Gobal Challenges program.
iEOS2013 would like to announce sponsorship from Thermo Fisher Scientific, Cambio and BGI tech. These companies represent leaders in the field of ‘Omics instrumentation, excellence in molecular biology and pre-eminence in Genomics service provision. We are are very grateful for their sponsorship and encourage all attending the conference to come and learn about about how these companies are providing the tools and technical innovations to support and underpin ‘Omics research.
